Red Cross Blood Drive Tuesday, February 21st, 12-6pm



Worthy Families, Parents of School Children at OLMC and PCHS, and Parish Parishioners of OLMC, St Jerome's, and St. Vincent DePaul,


We are in desperate need for Bingo volunteers. All positions are needed including ticket counters on Monday and Thursday afternoons. Additionally, Quality Control, Paper Bingo Sales, Floor Workers, and Bingo Manager Assistants are needed for Monday and Thursday evenings. Bingo is the Council's major fundraiser that allows us to provide funds for our Parishes, Catholic Education, and local charities. We appreciate any time you can offer. 


Please come into the Bingo Hall during Monday or Thursday during Bingo hours of 5pm and 6:30 to find out more.


Vivat Jesus,
